Publisher's Summary

Four classic BBC Radio episodes from the comic genius of Tony Hancock: The Diary/The Old School Reunion/Hancock in the Police/The East Cheam Drama Festival. Tony Hancock's premature death in 1968 at the age of 44 deprived the entertainment world of perhaps the greatest post-war comedian to have emerged from this country. It makes his 80 hours of material originally broadcast by the BBC on radio and television between 1954 and 1961 seem all the more priceless and rare. With his impeccable timing and brilliantly subtle shifts in intonation, he could create sound picture that bore the unmistakable hallmark of a genius. Supported by Galton and Simpson's marvellous scripts and by Kenneth Williams, Sid James, Hattie Jacques, Bill Kerr and the rest of the studio cast, the work of Tony Hancock lives on.

Wonderful! bought back some great memories.

Even after all this time they are still very funny. There style of comedy is terribly English, and a little old fashioned,but truly classic.
